Cardinal Mercier?s A Manual of Modern Scholastic Philosophy is a standard work, prepared at the Higher Institute of Philosophy, Louvain, mainly for the use of clerical students in Catholic seminaries. Though undoubtedly elementary, it contains a clear, simple, and methodological exposition of the principles and problems of every department of philosophy, and its appeal is not to any particular class, but broadly human and universal.
Volume I includes a general introduction to philosophy and sections on cosmology, psychology, criteriology, and metaphysics or ontology.
Volume II contains sections on natural theology, logic, ethics, and outlines of the history of philosophy.
About the Author:
Désiré-Félicien-François-Joseph Mercier (1851?1926) was a Belgian cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church. He served as archbishop of Mechelen from 1906 until his death and was elevated to the cardinalate in 1907. Mercier is noted for his staunch resistance to the German occupation of 1914. In 1877 Mercier began teaching philosophy at Mechelen?s minor seminary, of which he also became spiritual director. His comprehensive knowledge of Saint Thomas Aquinas earned him the newly-erected chair of Thomism at Louvain?s Catholic university in 1882.
